Oh no, what happened to the civility?
In yet another sign of how often Washington can be counted on to serve up heaping plates of steaming . . . nonsense, Vice President Biden today called Republicans “terrorists” and said Democratic leaders had experienced GOP “guns to their heads” as they tried to negotiate a debt ceiling deal.
I gather President Obama will call Biden over to the woodshed for a discussion of civil practices of discourse and a reminder of how wrong it is to use violent metaphors, since this can induce violence.
Some wondered at the time if the blame cast at Sarah Palin and others for instigating the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords D-Ariz.) by using gun-related metaphors was actually a heaping plate of steaming . . . subterfuge designed more to silence conservatives more than it was a call change to tone of the debate.
Those people need wonder no more.
What happened to Obama’s sermons at the time to change the tone and respect each other and OMG IT’S AUGUST GET ME THE HELL OUT OF WASHINGTON ALREADY thank you.
Update: Biden denies it.
